4. Being Cold

Be warm and friendly to whomever you want to like you. Even if you have sensed some cold vibes.

5. Lecturing people about what they should and shouldn't do

Suggesting works better than instructing. 

6. Criticizing people's beliefs and passions

Most people tend to hold their beliefs close to their hearts  and if you criticize them or judge them, people can take that very personally. 

7. Cutting off a conversation to look at your phone

If you're deep in conversation then breaking the flow by checking your phone all the time is a great way to make people dislike you.

All in all, the key to not making people dislike you is to make them feel heard, valued and seen.
